circle quilt love.........

I am *finished* with the circle quilt and it's bound and washed and wrinkly!  I was 69''x69'' before washing and it's just over 67''x67'' now.  I used 80/20 batting and I like the feel of it a lot.  Nice and light, great drape.

and here is the stack of DS quilts prints I'm going with.  I'm not going to try to get the whole collection.  I keep telling myself that anyhow, LOL.

and LOOOOOOKIE what I found when I was shopping for a new rotary cutter!!!!  AQUA!!!  And my favorite style one too.  My old one is going to go to our summer cabin to stay (where I have my Singer treadle).
The fabric and rotary cutter are parked on my grandma's paper cutter from when she was a teacher before my mom was born and when she was in grade school......  LOVE that thing, SO handy!


  1. I have a major crush on that wonderful quilt! And you chose the perfect print for the binding! Swoon. I haven't even started the Hunter's Star quilt yet and now I must make the circle quilt. I'm afraid to see what you have up your sleeve for the darling DS prints! And I can't start on any of them until I get our daughter's college quilt made and our son's Marine quilt. Never enough time to play!

  2. It's gorgeous! I want one too.

  3. I really like the quilting you did in the circles and the quilt is just lovely. I keep telling myself, "One day, one day!" So inspired!
